San Mateo County Council of Cities
The San Mateo County Council of Cities is an association of all 20 cities in San Mateo County. It meets monthly, except for August, to discuss matters of mutual concern and hear speakers on topics of interest. Agendas for meetings and speakers are determined by Council of Cities officers.
The City Selection Committee is a separate group composed of the mayors of all 20 cities or their designated voting representatives. It meets as needed to appoint or nominate representatives to county and regional associations. Agendas for meetings are set by the chair of the Council of Cities, who also serves as the chair of the City Selection Committee. They are distributed by the secretary of the City Selection Committee, Rebecca (Becky) Romero, who works in the county manager’s office. She also conducts the elections. Council members interested in seeking an appointment or nomination should send a letter of interest to her at RXRomero@co.sanmateo.ca.us not less than 10 days prior to date of the meeting at which the election will take place.
